With the start of the 2020 spring semester right around the corner, St. John's Athletics would like to recognize the hard work and dedication of its student-athletes during the 2019 fall semester.
 
St. John's student-athletes recorded a department-wide average grade point average of 3.42 during the semester, several points higher than the University-wide average. 
 
"I am so excited about the academic success of our student-athletes," said Associate Athletics Director for Student Services Eric Rienecker.

"There are so many demands on student-athletes today, far beyond just practices, travel, weights and competition. By successfully balancing both academics and athletics, our student-athletes truly exemplify the meaning of the term 'student-athlete'."

258 Johnnies, 81 percent of the student-athlete population, recorded a 3.0 or better GPA this past fall.  Of those 258, 176 turned in at least a 3.5 GPA while 44 earned a perfect 4.0 GPA for the semester.
 
All 17 of the program's teams recorded at least a 3.0 GPA while seven squads turned in a team-wide average of 3.5 or better, led by women's soccer and women's tennis at 3.73.
